It looks like Spring is finally on it’s way in Berlin, so it’s time to post this mix which is part of a 6 hour session i recorded in the lobby of the Michelberger Hotel on the 25th of January. Some old-school hip hop, lots of downtempo vibes and future beats. Enjoy the sun!
I finally found time to play some music yesterday night and decided to hit record. Some old, some not so old, and yes… winter’s still here, the selection reflects the mood of the current season. For the tracklist follow the mixcloud link. I hope you like it and sorry for missing out the updates around here lately, we’ve been real busy. Enjoy!
I´ve posted about Paxton Fettel before and been following his work and releases. Great downtempo house music.. groovy and smooth. This live set includes tracks from Greta Cottage Workshop, Noir Music, Falk Recordings and his upcoming release on Liebe * Detail. Enjoy!
Another weekend, another recording. I played some music at Multilayerladen close to Kottbusser Tor in Berlin and did the warm up from 22h to 00h30. Soundcloud allowed me to upload another 50 minutes so this is what you get. You might notice that i played 2 tracks from last weekend’s mix.. really love them. 50 minutes of deep house free to download, enjoy the music!
On friday the 23.03 i played some of my favorite records at the Michelberger Hotel lobby. Jazz, Soul, Downtempo, Deephouse.. lots of the stuff i have been listening to lately. I uploaded the first 3 hours of a 6 hour set.. quite a bit more downtempo stuff going on in the first part, and i only managed to record the first 4 hours as my old macbook’s memory run full. Last 3 hours where pretty much mostly deephouse.
My favorite part is the start anyway, mixing up the old and the new.. enjoy!!
Will Holland aka Quantic might be one of my all time favourite producers. His first albums released on Tru Thoughts in 2001 and 2002 are still in my playlist, as well has his new releases with the “Combo Barbaro” Band since he moved to Colombia. Tru Thoughts published an amazing “Best Of Quantic Mix by J.Rocc”, great mixing and selection… and important to mention, Quantic has just released a best of Album earlier this year.. Big up!
Wow! 6 hours of jazz, nu-jazz, hiphop, disco, house and eclectic sounds mixed back to back by Mr. Scruff and Floating Points at Plastic People on the 25th of June. Really happy to find this.. altough a bit late. Big up Mr.Scruff and Mr. Points, you sorted my day at work.
Follow the soundcloud link below for the tracklist.
Here’s one to watch out for. Darling Farah… he is producing some very fresh sound. Deep, dubbed, dark techno with a twist of soul.. reminds a bit of some deeper dubstep tunes. His Exxy EP was released on Civil Music in June. The description found at Civil Music says:
Originally from Detroit, Farah was born into this world with techno already sewn into his DNA. His later relocation to the U.A.E, which is one of the most club baron countries in the world and to a city that actually prohibits live music to be played in public, only further resolved the isolated Farah to embrace his musical heritage.
